The Best from Good
Audio of Being
White Light Rock & Roll Review
As an Australian out here in the antipodes, the DVD is the thing that makes this outstanding. Matt Good videos do not get played out here, and his songs don't for that matter, but too see the development of the visual form of his songs is fascinating.
I would recommend this to any person with an interest in Matthew Good's career.
Those who choose to rubbish this album by attacking the man should have a real close look at themselves, give themselves a few uppercuts and get a life!!!!
Having said that, my only beef with this collection is the lack of any tracks from "Audio of Being". I've seen him live 3 times, and he's played a grand total of one song from this album, one time. For some reason, Mr. Good seems to have a hate-on for what is possibly his best album.
Inevitably, most people are going to quibble about the track selection for any "greatest hits" package, but to ignore an entire album is a tad 'weird', to say the least. (But then, noone ever accused Matt of being stable.) Therefore, only 4 stars out of 5. Otherwise, the selection of tracks should please most folks.
The second CD includes some strange acoustic versions of other tracks, and although a bit jarring on first listen, I found that they grew on me quite a bit after a few listens. (Some of the selections are from "Audio of Being" - yay !)
I'd like to see a live DVD like the Hip recently put out - but somehow I don't think that will ever happen. So as far as DVD's go, this is probably going to be it : a compilation of his videos. Still, they're enjoyable to watch as they're a lot more interesting than 99% of the dross one encounters on MuchMusic these days.
Also, be sure to check out his book "At Last There Is Nothing Left To Say". You won't be sorry!
i had a friend complain that she spent so much money on all his albums and special things only to have him put this out - but i'm happy!!!!! i can listen to all his songs on each separate cd as I please, then occasionally be lazy and have a lot of his best songs in one place. mmmmm
plus... having the videos is AMAZING! there were a couple i had never even seen before!!!!
any true matthew good fan needs this whole package!
(this review coming out this ditzy is proof enough of my excitement for this collection!)
